A student from St. Cloud State University and mother of 3, Tanya was a stay-at-home mom until she started working for ERSI. A former swimmer, diver, and softball player, Tanya knows a thing or two about being competitive. Her experience as a mother and an athlete are what she uses every day to keep the guys in line and out there for their clients. She pushes them to be better while handling the office responsibilities. In her downtime, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, dreams of the future when she can travel with her husband, and watching her children play sports.
